Skin care has changed. It's changed SO MUCH even in the last couple of decades. Skin therapists have had to up their game- in a massive way! It's no longer about a simple cleanse, tone, moisturise; like grandma used to do.
Back in the mid 90's, when I was a fresh young beauty therapist straight out of college, I thought the skin care that was available to me as a therapist was amazing! We performed so many facials that kept clients skin hydrated, clean and plump. But, that was about it in terms of skin improvement.
In the last 20 years, I've seen the skin care industry evolve and change in so many ways. Products like the one in the 1990's still exist, BUT with the advancement in technology and research we now have skin care that can CHANGE skins!
Our clients lifestyle, skin and demands have changed dramatically over the years. We now have a greater NEED for results based skin care... Here's a few reasons why:
STRESS: Oh my, don't we lead full lives now!! The addition of The Internet, Smartphones and social media, things that are meant to make our lives easier has left most of us feeling more stressed. The constant pressure to be "on point" in every area of life, love and work is creating an unnecessary urgency and stress for a lot of already busy people.
Stress not only affects the brain and heart, it can show up in your skin as wrinkles, breakouts, inflammation and dark eyes.
PROCESSED FOODS & SUGAR: In 2012 a report revealed that Australians are consuming 192 teaspoons of sugar per week. Compared to an average of 17 teaspoons per week in the mid 1930's, this is a huge increase! Sugar consumption causes your insulin levels to spike, creating a burst of inflammation in your body.
This inflammation produces enzymes that actively break down collagen and elastin in your body- and more importantly in your skin- leading to accelerated ageing and wrinkles.
PRESCRIPTION & LIFESTYLE DRUGS: Nearly every prescription drug has a side effect on your skin. For example: Antibiotics and nicotine impair the skins wound healing ability. Sedatives and anti-depressants will make your skin more sensitive to light. Lifestyle drugs have a huge impact on your skins health and vitality, leaving your skin looking older than it is or creating lumps, bumps and sore breakouts.
Our lives have changed, and luckily professional skin care has been keeping up! Treatments and home care can now reduce pigmentation, correct acne, reverse ageing and treat so many imbalances; I get so excited at the endless opportunities to help people with their skin problems and complaints!
These are some of the reasons why your skin therapist at Boheme will tailor your treatment and home care prescription for you, every time you visit us. Your skin changes and evolves around you and your lifestyle, we are here to help!

As a skin care professional, it’s my duty to educate people why it’s so important to have a professional facial treatment. Most people don’t understand the benefits of a great facial and will usually wait until a problem arises like pigmentation, breakouts or ageing concerns before they contact a skin therapist.
Here are just five benefits of a professional skin treatment, keeping in mind that Boheme facials are 100% tailored to suit the individual. No two treatments are the same for our clients, we work hard to deliver great results!
Benefit 1. Professional Skin Analysis: having a regular catch up with your skin therapist will ensure that you are using the best products suited to your skin, saving you money and potential skin problems in the long run. Working together towards a long term goal, whether it be maintenance or solving skin problems, will keep your skin happy and healthy.
Benefit 2. Circulation: Your skin is the largest organ of you body! A treatment with a skilled therapist will increase the circulation, lymphatic flow and aid detoxification. This in turn helps to decrease waste accumulation in the skin, helping to remove puffiness and ruddiness as well as increasing general skin health and facilitate the renewal of skin cells.
Benefit 3. A Deep(er) cleanse: Boheme skin therapists are armed with a multitude of ingredients and equipment that will cleanse and gently exfoliate your skin deeper than you can do at home. Oils, enzymes, acids, steam and microdermabrasion are some of the tools we use to tailor the perfect cleanse for your skin.
Benefit 4. Relaxation: Facials allow you to relax. Turn off your mobile phone and let someone look after you for a while! The deep sense of relaxation and stress relief is amazing while you enjoy a massage with skilled and caring hands.
Benefit 5. Slow the ageing process: A professional skin therapist will give your skin a real work out!! We use active ingredients, exfoliation, hands on skill and technology. The end result will be clearer and smoother skin, more luminosity, relaxed fine lines and wrinkles and a more energised skin. All of these things contribute to slowing down ageing and maintaining the health and wellbeing of your skin!
We look forward to seeing you at Boheme City (Ph: 07 47245900) or Boheme Kirwan (ph: 07 47734402) soon!
